Train wreck at Montparnasse (October 22, 1895) by Studio Lévy and Sons.

Jakob Böhme (probably April 24, 1575 – November 17, 1624) was a German Christian mystic and theologian. He is considered an original thinker within the Lutheran tradition. In contemporary English, his name may be spelled Jacob Boehme; in seventeenth-century England it was also spelled Behmen, approximating the contemporary English pronunciation of the German Böhme. He is the subject of the texts "The Shoemaker of Gorlitz".
